""


Shawna Smith is a wife and mother of two with a passion for making things with her hands. After receiving a BFA in Fibers and Textiles from The Savannah College of Art and Design she jetted off to Chicago with the hopes of landing her first job. Opportunities weren’t over-whelming so she decided to make lemonade out of lemons and sell her own handmade wares. It started with a children’s collection (Shawna Smith Handmade) and eventually evolved to her newest brand UHM. At UHM, Shawna’s brings you simple, well designed, well-crafted domestic goods, made with 100% cotton and thoughtfully sourced materials to encourage us all to live better, simpler, kinder lives.
